Inherently Lost Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Originally started as a side project with the members from Torso Murder/Orwellian(Mark), Khai/All In(Joe) and Psyclosarin(Ian). Took a couple years but we finally got the debut Ep done.

2.Recently you have released an ep, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical styles you went for on the recording?
Really we were just trying to be as original sounding as possibly with still letting our individual influeces shine through. Noreen brought in all the clean vocals with the symphonic metal singing sound on parts; Mark added a melodic death metal and blackmetal feel; Joe added groove and melodic metal guitars; with Ian showing his blackmetal and death metal blast beats pounding away.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band has explored so far with the music?
The title track Our Last Midnight is about the rise of machines to the point the eliminate all humans that they see as a virus. The breakdown in this song is pretty epic. Overall the songs are a pre-apocalyptic warning.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Inherently Lost'?
After a year of jamming together in between our other projects started some hard brain storming. I was reading a lot about Sigmund Freud's theorys about how humans Inherently know how to do things straight out of the womb. Mixed with other days thinking about humans being programmed to consume and then bam! Narrated like the begining of a scifi movie "In an world filled with endless consumption, there is no wonder why, We are all Inherently Lost" just popped in my head.

5.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the ep cover?
The artwork was inspired by images of the nebulus galaxy's that NASA released. With the Inherently Lost (IL) symbol. Being a metal band we were looking for different imagery versus the normal doom and gloom metal ideas.

6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance? 7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
With being a side project we only managed few shows last year together in Inherently Lost. However once this Covid-19 pandemic calms down we are getting on track for a string of dates hopefully.

8.The ep was released on 'Entwined Recordings', can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
Entwined Recordings is Mark's independant record label and music production studio. Since there is no need for Major labels these days; Orginally only a recording studio, he decided to fully dive in to music marketing with the same name. They had a couple releases with different bands over the years, one of which included Joe's old band Khai.

9.On the ep you also did a cover of Cradle Of Filth's "Nymphatamine", what was the decision behind doing your own version of one of their songs?
The main drive was that it was dark, heavy, and 50/50 on clean/heavy vocals. Along with never hearing anyone else covering, it was the perfect song for us.

10.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of symphonic, black and death metal?
Pretty positive so far. You'll always have metal "elitists" that hate anything the isnt a carbon copy of a specific scene. You know the type "Its not kvlt, I hate clean vocals, I hate keyboards, etc." We are not playing music for them. We are playing for ouselves.

11.When can we expect a full length and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We are going to record 1 more Ep then follow it up with a full length. We are still continuing to evolve, right now it feels we are in the post-black metal, melodic death metal area. I can see some doom type riffage in our near future.

12.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Influences? Really too many to list but to just pick a handful; Epica, Lacuna Coil, Gojira, Heaven Shall Burn, Cradle of Filth, & Dimmu Borgir.
We are listening to new releases by Lacuna Coil, In This Moment, Code Orange, Heaven Shall Burn, Tool, Insomnium, and Cattle Decapitation

13.What are some of your non musical interests?
Traveling, Craft Beer, Wine, Mortal Kombat, Scifi,Horror shows and Art Museums

14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Inherently Lost/Our Last Midnight/Entwined Recordings/2020 EP Review

  Inherently  Lost  are  a  band  from  Ohio  that  plays  a  very  melodic  and  symphonic  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2020  ep  "Our  Last  Midnight"  which  will  be  released  on  Entwined  Recordings.

  Symphonic  sounding  keyboards  start  off  the  ep  and  also  mixes  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  music  while  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  at  times.  Clean  female  vocals  are  also  utilized  quite  a  bit  throughout  the  recording  while  also  bringing  in  a  touch  of  gothic  metal  and  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  good  amount  of  melody.

  When  aggressive  vocals  are utilized  they  also  introduce  elements  of  black  and  death  metal  onto  the  recording  while  a  slight  industrial  influence  can  also  be  heard at  times.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them while  one  track  also  introduces  clean  playing  onto  the  recording  and  as  the  ep  progresses  blast  beats  can  also  be  heard  briefly  on  a  couple  of  tracks.

 Most  of  the  music  focuses  more  on  a  slow  or  mid  tempo  style  and  they  also  bring  in  a  cover  of  Cradle  Of  Filth's  "Nymphetamine"  as  well  as  all  of  the  musical  instruments  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  while  the  lyrics  cover  apocalyptic  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Inherently  Lost  are  a  very  decent  symphonic  melodic  and  symphonic  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Requiem  For  The  Lost  (Dream)"  "Senseless  Sacrifice"  and  "Carnage  Of  Your  Sins".  7/5  out  of  10.
